is president obama may end up overseeing one of the most progressive eras in american history. the news that the supreme court is set to take up the issue of marriage equality is inconclusive. it bodes well for an america that aims to treat its set zens equally under the law. most republicans know this, and if they don't, history is a useful guide. in 1967, 16 states banned interracial marriage when the court legalized the union of men and women, regardless of their skin color. in 1954, 17 states had segregated school systems when the court declared in brown versus board of education that separate was not in fact equal. and in 1973 when roe v wade was decided, abortion was legal in only four states. given the court's historic inclination to favor expansion of freedoms, even when public opinion is not on its side, it would seem plausible the justices will conform what a majority believe is right and up hold the constitutionality of marriage equality. if this is in fact the result, president obama will guide one of the last remaining civil rights battles to completion. a moment that may c
